I'm just this guy, you know?

To expand on that, I am also the following...

- A former ficly member who is 38 years old and is schizoaffective (depressive type)

- Into creating languages and fantasy worlds from scratch

- A listener of audiobooks & good tunes

- Always too hard on myself


I sat hunched over my glass of whiskey. It was a double. It had to be. No other amount would do.

She was out of my life. I wished her well, but I couldn't help but worry for her, a person I felt so deeply for.

I mourned her as if she were dead.

I lifted the glass to my lips, but decided that first there needed to be a toast. One of remembrance. I pulled the glass away from my lips and held it up as if waiting for a second, imaginary glass to clink it.

"Le do sonas..." I said to myself, aloud and in a tone that couldn't possibly not have conveyed the hurt I was feeling.

I took more of a glug than a sip, but it was a glug-worthy moment. There was a hole in my heart where my friend should be. I took another, more reasonable swig this time, in honor of her. She hated the taste of alcohol, but couldn't help herself from nursing a whiskey while waxing philosophical with me on Sunday nights.

There aren't many in this world that will make you feel like your ship is being guided.

I now felt rudderless at sea.

Mourning someone who is not dead is the worst, because you never know when they will turn up and burn you over again.

Story prompt:

Pick a song. Can be one you like or just be a song at random.

Either while listening or after listening write whatever scene plays out in your head while that music is playing in the background.

Include the name of the song in the story title if you can.
